PALMETTO, Fla. – The season finale for the Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will become a tripleheader event, as round 10 — originally scheduled for Iowa Speedway — will move to the northern California venue.

A decision to alter the schedule was made between Andersen Promotions and Iowa Speedway after a lower than anticipated field was set to contest the 40-minute race slated for July 10.

“I want to thank [Iowa Speedway President] Jimmy Small for giving us the option to move our race off of next weekend’s schedule,” said Dan Andersen, owner and CEO of Andersen Promotions. “Iowa Speedway produces some great oval racing and it is unfortunate that we didn’t have what we felt was a viable car count to meet not only the track’s expectations but the fans as well. At this stage we will look forward to what is a pivotal round in the Indy Lights championship on July 10 and a return for Pro Mazda in 2017.”

Pro Mazda will next head to the streets of Toronto for a doubleheader event on July 15-17.
